A world without Starbucks

I think I may have an unhealthy relationship with Starbucks, but we'll get back to the. So I'm in the State capital, 5.5 hours away from home for the week. I'm attending a work conference, so I'm in a hotel, without my hubby (who needs a new blog nickname) and here are some observations:

--I should not be allowed to drive by myself for 5.5 hours. I am way to ADD for that. There seriously needs to be someone else driving so I can look at at signs and shit. Most people don't take ADD seriously, but they don't understand....look a chicken

--If you are holding a conference you should tell "people" ahead of time that there is a group dinner one night. This way "people" bring at least 2 nice shirts. I know that as a woman it is expected that I pack everything I own for a 1 week trip, but I'm not your typical woman. I mean I only own like 4 pair of shoes ( not including boots; boots don't count). As it is I had to schlep to the mall to buy a shirt that is casual but not not t-shirt casual but not dressy either.

--One would think that in the State capital, a major college town, there would be a Starbucks on every corner (see I told you we would get back to it). But no, the only one I can find is in the mall and that's not open at 7am. And for the record, the Starbucks website should not say there are three close to my hotel if there are not. (yes, I'm that pathetic, I spent 20 minutes looking for one online) I think I need Starbucks rehab..."Hi, my name is Sonja, and I'm an addict"..."Hi Sonja"

Yes a world with out Starbucks is a sad, dangerous, barbaric place...

That was great...

"look, a chicken"

I'm still laughing. Your the first person to ever outright admit that they are 'too ADD to drive for 5.5 hours"

"look, a chicken"

hahaha

That's one clever little Yvonne said...

I've never been in a starbucks. That should be against the law huh? I'm going to have to track one down to go into.
